Happy Thanksgiving, Jan! Love the crockpot mashies!


Those mashed potatoes sound perfect for a holiday dinner, especially since the crockpot will keep them warm for much longer than possible in a traditional serving dish. I always think of you and muffins this week. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Jan!

The pieces you are sewing together could be the feathers for a turkey. Just a thought.


Thanks for the recipe/link for the mashed potatoes. I am going to try this one using my own recipe since DS is lactose intolerant (none of the cheese or sour cream or butter). Happy Thanksgiving!

your blocks and bits are gorgeous - will definitely liven up the baskets. Safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!


Hmmm, I was just thinking about those stars (since I'm piecing some too) the other day and wondering how hard it would have been to hand piece rather than EPP. And these are all part of the baskets? I'm dying to see what you're doing with them all. Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanks for the recipe - I love make aheads! Those little stars are wonderful! Now I can't wait to see what you are doing with your baskets :0) Is the 25 patch going with the baskets too? Happy Thanksgiving!


I am hosting 17 for dinner this year, which is also my first year cooking Thanksgiving dinner! Eeek! I am immediately replacing my planned potato recipe with this one. Thanks very much!


Thanks so much for the recipe,will be using that and the crockpot also! Muffins look as yummy as always! The quilt squares are beautiful,love those colors together! You have a wonderful Thanksgiving also!!


I am so going to make those potatoes!


thanks for the recipe! Looks rich and delicious and practically fat free (lol)
your little stars are so sweet and I love the contrast with them.
the pincushion is adorable!


I love muffins so will be trying some of those recipes Ok I can't wait to see this basket quilt , love these stars and oh the 25 patch looks great, its the fabrics and the contrast of them I just am loving.

mashed potatoes sound amazing and almost fat free? I will give them a try maybe for Christmas



Love this post - we use our crockpot practically every day - our version of fast food! Your mashed potatoes recipe looks delicious and so do your muffins! Love your new additions to your basket quilt. Really appreciate the pictures you sent - I'm hoping to start my version this weekend. Thanks again for your help, and hope you and your family have a lovely Thanksgiving!


Oh how I love to hand pice lemoyne stars. Yours look pretty small, are they about 4" finished? These blocks are going to mix in so well with all your baskets, again, I'm loving all your fabrics!


I made the Mashed Potatoes they were incredible!Besides tasting wonderful,they were hot when we were ready, the crockpot cleared up oven/stovetop space... this is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it. Why have I not done this before?? I love my crockpot, I love the Fix It & Forget It cookbooks...Hope you all had a wonderful holiday also!


What a cool idea with the mashed potatoes! I have never put cream cheese in my potatoes but bet it is devine. Thanks for the recipe, I must try this one.


The recipe looks great. Saving this one for definite future use, as I am now, FINALLY, the owner of a Crock Pot.

The make-ahead mashed potatoes sound good. What a great idea. I am all for simplifying holiday meals as I usually host them! Love the colors of your basket block. Always nice to carve out a little time for stitching amid the holiday hubbub.
